of fiscal resources and the state of our economy. i'm not a foreign policy guy or a strategic guy, but that seems, obviously, right to me. if you can't aboard the kind of military you need to project power, if you can't afford to fund the state department in the kinds of ways it should be doing, no matter how many people we have or how wealthy some of our citizens are. i don't worry, if you don't mind my digressing slightly, i don't worry about china being a bigger economy than we are. i don't honestly care how big china is. they do have three-and-a-half times more people than we do. i'm more concerned with how big we are -- >> how big or how rich? >> well, i put them in the same -- rich being gdp. how successful are we economically. um, and so i do think it is, i think resolving the fiscal thing is of essential importance to our business community in terms of deciding how much they're going to spend, where they're going to invest, how many people they're going to hire and, therefore, to our position in the world. not just the problem of our debt and deficit, but unless we, unless
in the christian conservative community. can you talk about foreign policy or gay individuals and how the conservative christian community is looking at those issues? >> we are still looking at a post-election survey that we commissioned, that we got this morning about 5:00 a.m., but the preliminary evidence is pretty consistent with what i have seen throughout my career. there is a tendency to caricature and stigmatize voters of devout faith and suggest that they live in trailer parks and are poor and uneducated and easy to command. they cling to their guns and religion and vote on gay marriage and abortion. not true. if you look at the evangelicals who voted yesterday, they voted on the economy and jobs to the exact same percentage the rest of the electorate. to put it in biblical terms, it rains on the just and unjust alike. they are also struggling with their mortgages and figuring out how to put their kids through school. they voted to a large part on the economy and jobs. you look at issues like same-sex marriage and abortion, and it was about 10% of what drove. i think what you
of the foreign policy and defense positions, huge turnover in these critical posts, some of the names being floated as permanent replacement are john brenen undersecretary of defense, the director for national intelligence. for the cia, is it important to get this one picked and in place quickly? >> yeah, absolutely. you want to move on from this. the cia will function a very capable organization but you need someone at the-ment leading the direction. he had to be traveling and doing all of these things. i think john brenen would be a good choice. he has been doing a lot of quiet diplomacy abroad especially in the middle east but right now you have the situation with hilary clinton may be leaving, leon pen d -- penetta. >> jennifer: do you think senate confirmation for any of these will be very difficult? don't you think that there is some recognition that these positions are going to [ inaudible ] confirmation. >> it's true and if colon powell and john kerry, i'm just throwing them out there -- it's two very capable people leading foreign policy and they wouldn't have a
not understood] former president bush trapped in afghanistan. during last momon's presidential debate on foreign policy, the president of our $16 billion corrupt united states gave aid to domestic enemies panatumimabv to betray people, unconstitutional wars against cia fabricated enemies for fascist gain. obama claimed to be our commander-in-chief, which he is not. he [speaker not understood] end the war in iraq which he has not. he lied about those ho actually killed us on 9/11 t. was not al qaeda. the three capital crimes of trees on rendered constitutionalist turn dictator president obama [speaker not understood]. he can redeem himself. number three, more mass murder mitt transformed himself to more money mitt romnesia. [speaker not understood] imposter commander-in-chief obama committed a treason which is a felony. [speaker not understood] worried about being held accountable to [speaker not understood] by yours truly, [speaker not understood]. [speaker not understood]. president obama has lost his main no-brainer issue [speaker not understood]. >> thank you very much. next speaker. >>> john
the financial crisis of four years ago, the chinese have been much more assertive in foreign policy, particularly in these territorial disputes in the south china sea. they have been saying some pretty outrageous things about for example the fact that none of the states in that area can talk to each other how to deal with a rising tide of. they all have to deal with china bilaterally. >> a party theorist ones that the real threat to china lies in the american encouragement of rights lawyers, underground religious activists, dissidents, a vulnerable groups. when this list was published, there was outrage because of the overtones with mao era which ones. there is no problem of democratic accountability at all. >> china will evolve its own type of democracy, whether at the west except it or not. i'd describe it this as some kind of election of a the past 2000, 200 years since china was traded to. at the top level, it is always a unified confusion. we havwithout this type of structure, the country will disintegrate. what is the greatest fear in your life, it would be chaos. >> right on
an audience. you know, when you are the president's foreign policy spokesman and you are hanging out and have the israeli prime minister and then the chairman trying to reach a middle east peace, you go, okay, what we tell the press? and you say, you can tell them whatever you want except for this and that. and what else is there? [laughter] but now we have dennis ross was out of government. and he is writing a new book. when you think about the next four years, clearly how the united states relationship evolves with iran, whether the nuclear issue can be resolved short of conflict will be among those if not the most pivotal issue facing the president in his second term. in 2009 when you were at the state department as the special envoy forswore wrong, there was a strategy of both engagement and pressure. going back to 2009 there is the engagement that has continued at a certain level through the five plus one process, but then there has been focused over the last couple of years on pressure sanctions and the 40% drop in iranian currency shows that we now have the pressure of the last couple
, interestingly, to telescope a long argument, the area of greatest continuity in u.s. foreign policy since the time of nixon has been our dealings with china. where, on the one hand, we think it's better if they grow than if they don't. on the other hand, we have all sorts of problems with them. i think that is the way obama has pursued it and will keep pursuing it. so i think they actually are relieved to have a second term. >> what do they want from us? >> they want essentially a chance to develop. i -- >> you mean develop economically? >> develop economically. and just to sort of breathe. when i lived in japan, i was quite alarmed, and remain so, about sort of the zero-sumness of many of japan's economic ambitions, which sort of came out of american achievement. in china's case, i think it's different. it's a gigantic poor country where most people are still poor. the per capita income is still, like, one-fifth what it is in the united states. a lot of really rich people, but still they have more farmers than we have people. and it's a giant challenge. and so i think what they want is i
in the foreign policy land. many liberals would have a critique of some of his lack of process in some of the foreign policy stuff. is part of what he's saying that the recalcitrance of the republican house might bring out that aspect of president obama? >> well, i think there are two things. first, i think steve is absolutely correct. the republicans forced his hand. by showing that they were going to be entrenched opposition that could not be reformed or changed, he had to assert himself. the debt ceiling debacle was the place where it all came together because i think the country saw how the resistance would not move and his progressive allies were profoundly disappointed that he was, in fact, rolled by the republican issue. so i think in the foreign policy realm he was determined to show that as a democratic president he could be strong and obviously his effort to get osama bin laden was a big piece of that. but his policy towards syria, his policy toward the iraq war, his effort with afghanistan was all designed to blunt that effort. >> that's true. >> as much as he is committed t
editor for foreign policy as well. thomas, thank you so much for coming in. you write today that a source told you that president obama tried to talk general petraeus out of resigning. we just heard the same thing from john harwood as well. tell me what you're hearing. >> well, first of all, there aren't going to be any criminal charges in this. this is really a tempest in a teapot. the sad thing is general petraeus is probably the most famous general we've had since world war ii. here is a guy who did a terrific job in both iraq and then had a harder time, but still served well in afghanistan. the idea that somebody would be out in the desert for six and a half years and slips somehow with a personal indiscretion, what we approved here is the david petraeus is a human being. i think it also says a lot more about us as a country than it does about david petraeus. in world war ii, if we held dwight eisenhower to this standard, he would have been fired. matthew ridgway, another great general, in the korean war, he got a new wife for every war. he had affairs all over the place. so this is a
them to heel when it comes to foreign policy, teach them to stop making messes in oash -- other people's yards. when it comes to domestic policy, teach them to stay out of the bedroom, out of our beds. term limits would be good, too. when we give power to politicians, they should know they don't get to keep it forever. if a few years, they bring the poir back to us and drop it at our feet. good boy. now, back to the kennel. that's not going to be easy, but at least we made a little progress this election. some states elected people who support liberty like senator flake and congressman amsah and others. georgia voters said yes to expanding charter schools. two states voted to allow all adults, not just sick people to use marijuana. several said yes to gay marriage, and michigan defeated a plan that would have made unions more powerful. there was some progress, not much, but some. there's some good news. that's our show. thank you for
of the years, never before an audience. [laughter] when you are the president's foreign-policy spokesman and handing out in the roosevelt room as you have the israeli prime minister and then chairman arafat and the president trying to reach middle east piece you go and say, okay. but we tell the press. look, you can tell them what everyone except for this, this, and this. what else is there? but now we have the dennis two is out of the government. and writing a new book. so if you think about the next four years, clearly how the united states relationship evolves with ron, then the clear issue can be resolved short of conflict will be among those, if not the most pivotal issue facing the president in his second term. so start off, in 2009 when you were at the state department's as the special envoy for ron there was a strategy, both engagement. go back to 2009. the engagement has continued at a certain level, but then there has been the focus over the last couple of years on pressure, sanctions, and clearly the 40% drop in the value of a running currencies shows that actually is having t
foreign policy is working in the muslim world. they are glad to have him gone. >> this thing is not going to go away. obviously people are saying that the store store will unfold if not days, but the store store will come out. >> i was in the white house during water gate. it has drip, drip, drip of whistle blowers, for the administration point of view. petraeus is in a far different position. he is an independent guy and nothing will stop him saying the truth. his whole life he has run toward the bullets and i expect he will sayie a lot and we'll finally get to the bottom of this. >> we'll be following your store store closely fox news sunday has a brew with diane feinstein. check your local listings for the time and channel it takes place. end to a bitter campaign season. americans are hoping that that will not be the beginning to a more bitter debate here in washington. will congress decide on grid lock or compromise. and congressman michael grimm on the thousands of people in the staten island drict who remain without power and what is done to help them. don't go away. this family use
an article calling the other fiscal cliff as foreign policy. the shake up on the foreign relations committees -- three of the chair and a ranking member being gone but if senator kerry would move positions it would be a complete clean slate on how often set aside and wondering how it affects the president's ability to build up the top line foreign policy issues, like syria and iran, but also others like foreign aid which has a nice rubber duckie on the catalog today. it helps pay our salaries. >> i think bob corker will be interesting as ranking member on foreign relations. he skipped the republican convention this summer to go to the middle east. and he has been doing a lot of traveling. he is super smart about these kinds of things. i think he will try to mold himself a little bit -- not completely, like dick lugar, honestly. he will be against the hawks i think on a number of occasions. we did a story recently about him and we had john mccain talk about how much -- how much he respected and although they did not always see eye to eye. but i think the foreign relations panel in both chamber
facing several foreign policy challenges including iran, how the middle east could make or break his legacy. why let constipation slow you down? try miralax. mirlax worksdifferently than other laxatives. it dws water into your colon to unblock your system naturally. don't wait to fe great. miralax. >>>. >> gregg: president obama preparing for his second term with several foreign challenges looming. iran shows no signs of slowing down the nuclear crisis. questions keep mounting about that deadly terror attack against the u.s. consulate in benghazi. what needs to be done by the president? how should he handle and prioritize. aaron miller is advisor to six secretaries of state. i did enjoy reading your column. you offer suggestions for the president's second term. you started out by chiding him for elevated view in the mold of lincoln. pleat quote. with all due respect, mr. president, try to be a tad more humble. i knew abe lincoln. you are no abe lincoln. but seriously, you advised that the world is not going to be transform by him or anybody else. what do you mean? >> the problem is t
administration foreign policy. do you see anywhere in the world where we are better off or where we are viewed as a stronger, more powerful nation than we were when barack obama first took office? >> absolutely to the contrary. the fact of the matter is, when america has very strong leadership, the world is a safer and a better place. when american leadership is indecisive or paralyzed by fear of consequence, which we have had a lot of, the world is a much more dangerous place. that's what you get from our allies in the region, particularly in those areas where our values and our national interests are being contested as they are in the middle-east. they all fundamentally believe the united states policy is to pull away from them and to disengage. they are terrified by the prospects of an advancing iran, and an advancing al qaeda and affiliated groups with a weakened united states, as a player. >> when you look at the issue of nuclear proliferation, as well, ambassador, iran is a concern. but you look across the region and the extent to which you will have other nations, clearly attempting to
presidents moving to foreign policy over the last two years. so what can he get accomplished in 16 months. it's the confidence. it's like getting the game-winning shot. then you can come back. i think there will be a certain amount of confidence that he's going it have. i think you saw that on tuesday night. tuesday night you saw the president obama that we saw in 2008. which we hadn't seen up until that moment. >> and he spoke about citizenship. that was refreshing, what are our responsibilities. it's not just a sound byte of ask not, as important as that was,. >> yes forward backward frame, that was fine. but that's your point is it's sort of a cotton candy. there's ultimately not a lot there. the citizen concept is loaded with a lot of important ideas that go to the heart of what we are as americans what it means our constitution. >> gavin: for the millennials which you speak of, which are naturally wired, literally and figuratively in that empathetic role. >> this is something that you spent a lot of time on. you've looked at this issue. you've done this. it will be interesting to see the
the foreign policy issue i'm sure that would be front and center, but what can they accomplish in the 16 months. before you get re-elected there is a certain confidence. it is the like the game-winning shot. you come back because you know you're going it line it up. there is a lot of confidence there. i think there will an certain amount of confidence that he's going to have. i think you saw that tuesday night. tuesday night you saw the barack obama that we saw in 2008 which we haven't seen up until that moment. >> gavin: you talked about citizenship which was refreshing. i hope it's one of those larger themes intergenerational, what our responsibilities are. it's not just a sound byte of ask not as important as that was, but an organic. >> your point is it's a cotton candy, it tastes good but ultimately there is not a lot there. the citizenship concept goes to the heart of what we are as americans and what it means. >> gavin: and i would imagine for the millennials which are naturally wired for that empathetic role. >> yes, this is something that you've spent a lot of time on. you've lo
from the increasingly vocal feminists who demanded more of a role in government policy. she was a woman he could trust to do only what he expected her to do. pat's foreign traveling did more than feed her desire for a venture visiting new places, it was a way of reconnecting with her husband and the team of old. he had never been more a part of his life and work than when they traveled together during the vice-presidential years. the circumstances unchanged. now they traveled with a huge entourage of aides, security personnel and reporters and feelings toward the u.s. had hardened over the years but her husband's faith and her abilities demonstrated by his willingness to send her off by herself must have gratified her. ec's the opportunities to prove herself. her trip to peru in 1970 he penalize her value as a foreign ambassador. on may 31st, 1970, and earthquake measuring 7.75 on the richter scale devastated half of peru killing at least 50,000 people and displacing hundreds of thousands of others. mudslides followed the initial quake causing further damage. homeless, injured and starv
accused of involvement in foreign policy. author in his book accused jarrett of convincing the president to call off an earlier attempt to get osama bin laden. the white house denied that, too. one official said this time, quote, she has no role in iran policy and doesn't want one. still, some are kleined to think -- inclined to think of maneuvering with his comment to russian leader. the administration denies reports of post election u.s. talks with iran and say talks with the u.n. city council won't resume until iran satisfies the inspection demands. at the state department, wendell goler, fox news. >> arthel: when we come back, lessons from election night 2012. we break down what worked and what didn't this campaign season, as well as look ahead at what's next for the gop. >> rick: plus in the event of another natural disaster, you probably don't want to get stuck without one of these. coming up, "consumer reports" is here with a list of the best power generators on the market. stick around my doctor told me calcium is efficiently absorbed in small continuous amounts. citracal slow re
the world is that america has a confused foreign policy and a weakened defensive posture. >> it's really a weak reaction. look, during the clinton administration issue we had the bombing of the uss cole. we had the implosion, the terrorist attack on our embassies in tanzania and kenya. and really, nothing was done. we know when these things happen, our enemies are emboldened and they feel like there is a weak response. ironically, we have an administration that is quick to put an american in jail for making a youtube video and for disciplining seven navy seals for being consultants on a videogame. so they're quick to discipline americans. but when it comes to foreigners, they just keep turning the other cheek and sending a weak message. >> rick, great to see you, as always. thanks. before we go, a programming note, i will be on fox news sunday this week. so tune in on sunday. i will be on the panel. don't forget to check out laura ingraham dot-com and find out information about my radio show, sign up to become a laura 365 member. and on twitter. so i want to get all of your tweets tonigh
the development of his thinking about the organization, about grand strategy in u.s. foreign policy. not all of that made it into the book. some of it ended up on the cutting room floor, but that could be in my dissertation and perhaps i will finish it. we could see at various points what he was thinking at a certain point and then see how that's playing out. in the summer of june 2000 and 1 general mcchrystal said i remember sitting on the couch watching television and watching the faces flashed across the flu could possibly face him. and they said oh, no they will never sent him. but as we could train chapter one of the book, the army knew that his name is probably in the hat even though the media was not speculating about it at the time. yet received a call from mcchrystal when the rolling storm stone article broke. he was pretty sure that he had received some article that were causing the lose his job. and he was told that he was pretty likely to be selected for afghanistan. he was at the white house for a regularly scheduled meeting, but someone from the oval office came down and says t
but it is already having an adverse impact on our foreign policy relations with mexico. host: what are your thoughts? guest: the court said the federal government is able to enforce their laws. the accord said nothing about preemption. -- the court said nothing about preemption. they can force federal law throughout the united states of america. colorado and washington and moved their state laws. federal law enforcement can go into washington and colorado and force marijuana prohibition. does the dea and department of justice wants to spend federal tax dollars acting in compliance -- to arrest individuals acting in compliance with state laws? that tax dollars would be going to enforcement all laws that are now on popular by a majority of americans. against people who are acting legally under state law. host: let's get our viewers and listeners in vaults and the numbers are on the screen -- our first call comes from debra in richmond, va., on our line for democrats. caller: good morning, i would like to know the procedures that i would have to take in a state that has legalized a medical marijuana. i
, this is why this is so critical. our foreign policy is we promote democracy. we judge you whether we're going to give you aid or military weapons or have relations with you by how well you are al loud to vote. >> chris, i mean, it's clear that part of the long lines have to do with poor election administration, right? we had people that weren't trained, machines that weren't working and bad election preparedness. i believe the long lines were a result of what we saw with a war on voting. >> exactly. >> we had 25 restrictive laws being passed, two executive actions in 19 states and those remnants affected us today. i can explain this so in ohio and florida we had long lines. some of the laws they passed did that in the voting. >> in the balloon. if you have people here you'll have a bullet over there. >> right. it created enormous confusion because there were challenges. in pennsylvania we kept hearing people call in to the election protection hotline saying they're turning me away because i don't have voter i.d. we know that the voter i.d. wasn't implemented. >> it was struck. >> that didn't
with the president and shares his views on foreign policy. well, two different countries, two very different stories. iran's defense minister now claiming that two iranian planes did shoot at a u.s. drone over the persian gulf. iran claims the drone was within its airspace when fired upon. the white house has said the drone was flying in international airspace. the unmanned drone was not damaged. >> lady liberty lighting up new york harbor for the first time since super storm sandy hit. the statue serves as a beacon of hope for other storm victims. liberty island was badly damaged during the storm. bring and stone walkways were torn up and docks ripped apart. power is also out. so crews are using a temporary lighting system powered by generators to light up the statue. it is shut down indefinitely until repairs can be made. >> i know a lot of people would go live in the crown right now because they are still without power. >> two weeks later. >> they are miserable in parts of new york, new jersey and connecticut and continuing our coverage of sandy's aftermath the power still out for hundreds of tho
's how it works. >> do you think that caterpillar is making a call based on potential future policy? i think you're short-- what they are saying is foreign governments and their demand is what's falling off right now. the rest of the world is much-- >> right. >> because they were shrinking their economies a little too early in the recession and too quick into austerity and california is america's greatest economy, let's not forget that, much bigger than many, many states combined. right now, that's driving america and technology. >> the biggest doesn't necessarily mean greatest, does it, gary b? >> no, it didn't. and jonas is right. we'll have a chance to see how quickly, quote, unquote, california's economy grows, but i want to come back to one other point and jonas made the comment, government can create jobs. government cannot create jobs. first off to hire teachers, that's the biggest kenard out there, that's not the government's job. we would have had millions of net jobs, instead zero net jobs. the government does not create jobs, so that's silly. >> jonas, quickly respond. >> ch
